disclaimer: I am feeling the effects of nighttime cough medicine.
I am so happy with what I have in my life. I have this beautiful daughter to raise. She is beautiful in every way and is a joy. I have a good job that is fulfilling, demanding, utilizes my degree and is flexible, allowing me to have lots of time with my daughter. I have supportive and loving family. I have lots of amazing friends. I have a home. I have my health. I have a lot.
I want more.
I can't help it. I want to adopt another child. I am afraid Ethiopia will close to singles before I can get it together financially. My wonderful job is hard on the pocketbook. I keep thinking ... once I pay off the credit card and the student loan ... I could afford the monthly increase for health and child care and the adoption expenses.
I think Lucy would be an awesome big sister (or even little sister).
I had to say it ...
